  1. Hi I have been using Spadnext since it first came out and you constantly read that the program is overly hard. I started with the Saitek drivers,then Lynda, then Spad and then . There is definitely a learning curve in the program but I found the easiest way was to go into the program and download either a snippet or a complete setup from the site. At this stage your Saitek units can be almost completely setup. If you are happy with the result you dont have to do anything else. I now have 10 units programmed through and there is no way the other programs could go anywhere this bit of kit. Being able to make and program your own switch panels makes this hobby so much richer. A good example of the programs abilities is when my saitek switch panel died. Instead of throwing it out I have added leds above all the switches,removed the original USB cable and wired the switches to a Derek Speares board and that I allready had and then programmed the whole thing through . All I can say is start small and work up from there. Ken
  2. Hi Just a thought as it happened to me. There are two train buttons almost next to each other. Make sure you use the left hand button to get into the Training. Ken
  3. Hi I couldnt get any closer if I tried. I use a Dave Clarke Headset rewired for stereo and a filter module I made to use it on the comupter. I bought the headset 2nd hand off ebay a couple of years ago. The Track IR clip pro has had the clamp base removed and is now attached to the side of the headphones. Ken
  4. Hi I think this is what you are looking for; Seems like LM broke the SP1 SimConnect interface in v4. They hope to fix it in next release. Anyway because of it Traffic Optimizer (v1914) does not work with P3D v4. Until LM fixes it, here's a new version (v1915) which use SP2 SimConnect and works fine: Don't forget to install SP2 SimConnect from: <P3D Install Dir>\\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib\SimConnect.msi The links seem ok This information came from this post Ken
  5. Hi i will jump in here. SpadNext when you get use to it us in a word awsome. I use Saitek yoke, pedals, Fip, Switch panel, Auto pilot panel, radio panel, a Derek Spears board and a PacLed64 board controlling another 42 leds 22 switches and 8 encoders all running with the use of this program. There are numerous downloads on the site for different boards and planes from all over on the site to get you going. You dont have to buy the full licence to start with, in fact I still havnt but Connex (the owner) is extremelly helpfull. You can try the program on a trial ( I cant remember how long) to see if it is for you. By the way I am also a Beta tester but definetly not a salesman. Ken
  6. Hi Have you seen Sim Shaker for aviators. I use it with 2 buttkickers in P3d and DSC. No need for opus any more as I found these effects better, using a Sound blaster play usb card through to a standard amp to the buttkickers. I have found this set up a lot better than when I was using buttkickers own amps actually. This link will give you an idea Ken
  7. Here you go Yair Since I dont use Xplane I cannot help you there ,hopefully someone else can. Ken
  8. Hi If you use the program "Scp Toolkit" to configure the playstation joy as an Xbox joy then ChasePlane works perfectly. Here's a quick video Ken
  9. Hi Keven thanks for the answer, I hope I didn't sound too abrupt as I only meant it as a suggestion for later. I am enjoying using Chase Plane at the moment and will watch its growth as time goes on. I had read the presets section in the manual but it hadnt clicked as to the shortcut as at the moment I have only kept 1 outside camera to each plane. Ken
  10. Hi At the moment unless I am mistaken it is only possible to program an axis to one particular controller. This means that if you are using TrackIR for inside camera views you cannot then map an XBOX contoller axis to the outside views or even use the hat switch on a yoke. Having multiple axis for different views would make the system a whole lot friendlier. One other question is can different outside cameras be programed to a short cut per plane so that you can go straight to a specific camera are do you have to rotate through the views to the one you want. Thanks for the program it is looking very very promising at the moment. Ken
  11. Hi I keep seeing people saying 1 download a day. This is incorrect, if you read the original statement it was 1 download a day of each download. I have been merrily downloading today and installing into a new system. Ken Ennis
  12. Bill would run perfectly well with your HOTAS it has to be told what control equipment to use so if you dont want it to effect the HOTAS you simply don't program it in. There is a bit of a learning curve in but the forum is good and there are a lot of online profiles people have put on. Ken
  13. Hi You dont actually use vpilot. The link I gave originally came from vpilot showing how to set up the button through FSuipc. Page 2 and 3 show you the settings you need. A better way to run your PTT switch is as I said in the last post. If you are using for your controls then all your controls can be on the networked machine and you can select the PTT switch through the normal way in P2A. Just a thought. Ken
  14. Hi If you use you can have all of your controls on the networked machine. Doing this allows the PTT switch to be used normally with Pilot2ATC without any extra work. works on FSX P3d and x-plane so good luck. Ken

    Richard You should not be worried about the voice commands. They may of take a while to get use to but once you have them under your belt they are purely awesome to use, they add a lot to the experience. Ken
